Since I’ve started paying attention to my diet and level of activity, I’ve lost 5 lbs in about 12 days. Not too shabby!
I also scheduled a session with a personal trainer for tomorrow at the gym. Since I don’t have to pay for my membership, I don’t feel too bad about spending money on a trainer, since I need that extra push from someone else to really get a good workout.
I’m hoping that actually doing a real workout, not just walking the dog, or doing some cardio, will help me to start feeling in better shape, and thus more motivated to keep going.
Although, I am scared to start doing real workouts when I’m so out of shape, because I’ve never been in this place before. I know I will get super winded, and not be able to do things I used to do, and it will be harder than I am expecting, but hopefully I will bounce back pretty quick since I was in great shape only about a year and a half ago.
